Teens will explore the basic elements of comedy improv such as building relationships, character development, listening and agreeing, within the framework of short-form improv, in the style of the popular TV show “Whose Line is it Anyway.” Over a period of seven 2-hour rehearsals, the group will learn a variety of improv games, culminating in a Stages showcase performance. Oh yeah, and they’re going to have a ton of FUN!

Performers of all ethnic and racial backgrounds are encouraged to register. Each troupe member is crucial to the success of the show. The experience will be exciting, fun and valuable.
